The Orioles are 1-6 this year now with six losses in a row vs. the Yankees.
I say it’s sure not the pitcher’s fault. The O’s team ERA this year vs. New York is 3.97 in those seven games and they gave up just one earned run last night. This vs. a Yankees team that leads the AL in team average, on base percentage and runs scored.
At home, New York is averaging 6.6 runs per game this season. They have scored 18 runs in four home games this year vs. O’s pitching, an average of just 4.5 per game.
New York has out-scored the Orioles 34 to 16 on the season. So the O’s average just 2.3 runs per game vs. the Yankees this season.
